Sprint Supports Students With New Programs And Services

Seventy-eight percent of teens now have a cell phone, and almost half (47 percent) of those own smartphones. That translates into 37 percent of all teens who have smartphones, up from just 23 percent in 2011 1. With the continued growth of smartphone use among teens, it is important to ensure they are using the device safely and responsibly and providing parents with tools and resources to help manage the use.

Sprint (NYSE: S) is committed to educating families and providing tools and resources about important topics like distracted driving and Internet safety through its 4NetSafety and Focus on Driving programs. Sprint also strives to make wireless use affordable for families and students.

Best Buy Unlimited, My Way Student Promotion

Today, high schools and colleges are incorporating technology into their lesson plans and allowing students to use their smartphones in class. In fact, among teen smartphone owners, 50 percent say they use the Internet mostly via their cell phone 1. In an effort to enable students to use their wireless device where and how they need it, Sprint and Best Buy are offering students an exciting new and affordable plan for the holiday season.

Eligible students who purchase a Sprint phone at the student activated price, sign up for a new line of service on an Unlimited, My Way plan at Best Buy and Best Buy Mobile stores, and meet all offer requirements will receive 12 months of free service from Sprint 2. The free service includes unlimited talk, text and 1GB of data on smartphones (data blocked on basic phones). Students can add unlimited data for just $10 per month (prices exclude $36 activation fee, taxes and Sprint surcharges). Customers also can enjoy unlimited talk, text and data with the Sprint Unlimited Guarantee – not just for now, but for life 3. This offer is available exclusively for students at Best Buy and Best Buy Mobile stores across the country.

“A quality education provides our young people with the building blocks they need to achieve success in their lives,” said Jeff Hallock, senior vice president of Marketing, Sprint. “As technology becomes more prevalent in the classroom, Sprint is committed to providing schools, teachers, parents and students tools and resources to help increase learning. And, now we also are helping to make life easier for students by offering free Sprint service by purchasing a wireless phone at Best Buy.”
